POEMS in the Waiting Room

The latest Otago Poems in the Waiting Room brochure has now been distributed to medical waiting rooms, prisons and rest homes around Dunedin city and Otago province. The autumn issue contains a poem by Janet Frame ('A Golden Cat').

Other featured poets include Gary McCormick, Claire Beynon, Michael Harlow, and Frankie McMillan.

The original Poems in the Waiting Room organisation has a website explaining the origins of this medical/arts charity.

The Dunedin initiative was started in 2009 by Dunedin poet Ruth Arnison.
